For the relatively short time that I had the opportunity to work for PomadeShop, we prepared and managed long-delayed tour through the barbershops in the Netherlands. In one day we have visited almost every barbershop in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Fuuu, it gave us a hard time, but it was absolutelly worth it! It was great fun and we’ve got to know interesting people! The Netherlands has a large base of barbershops, not to mention that Schorem is probably the most famous barbershop in our neighborhood. So here are impressions of our trip and of course the address where you can find the barbershops.
Za ten pomerne krátky čas čo som mala možnosť pracovať pre PomadeShop, sme stihli dlho pripravované a odkladané turné po barbershopoch v Holandsku. Za jedeň deň sme obehali asi všetky barbershopy v Rotterdame a Amsterdame. Fuuu, dalo nám to zabrať, ale stálo to naozaj za to! Bola to super zábava a spoznali sme zaujímavých ľudí! Holandsko má veľkú základňu barbeshopov, nehovoriac o tom, že Schorem je asi najslávnejší barbershop v našom blízkom okolí. Tu vám teda prinášam dojmy z nášho výletu a samozrejme aj adresy, kde môžete dané barbershopy nájsť.
You can see how much fun we have had on our face expressions.
So the first barbershop we have visited is New York Barbershop in hotel New York. You really feel like in the old districts of New York City. Even Rotterdam is called ‘little New York’. There is also connection from Holland – America line, which connect Holland with America as well with big ship like Titanic. AMAZING! I have seen it one time and it was really like from the movie, when the passagiers were entering on the board & the old jazz bands were playing…everything suits together to the good old times. Robert (the owner of New York Barbershop) has introduced us his barbershop, gave a gratis haircut to Stan finished with his Corleone pomade and showed us also hotel New York. We had no words! As we all adore vintage and good old times, it was indescribable experience! On the end I would recommend to put to your ears some good old jazz like Blue Flamingo – 78 Rpm aaand you will be immediately in the right 50’s mood.

The next station were my favs – Rotterdam Barbers! Wild Texas Bohemian style inspired barbershop where the Sheriff Remco ‘Coos’ Ravelo friendly welcomes you with full fridge of good dutch beers. You feel right as family here, also because Remco was working for a big family such as Schorem. I really like this barbershop for it’s americana style and friendly atmosphere. I will definitelly come to visit guys next time, drink some beer and babble what’s new in Rotterdam and around barber scene…

AAAAAAND at the end the best! Tadaaa the one and only Schorem Haarsnijder en Barbier! Yes Yes, we succeed to visit these brutal famous men! I look like that they have also cut my hair, but I just spontaneously greased my hair with pomade as well haha.
Do you see Stan’s PomadeShop pictures hanging on the wall at Schorem? Awesome!
Actually I had to cross my leg like Nelis haha, then it would be perfect.
SO! We had a blast! Me with my sister couldn’t entered inside, cause women are not allowed, but insted of that went men outside.
